In Honor of the Birth of a Wife
A poem I composed promptly,
In honor of your newest year.
I decided, however, to delete it,
as Facebook frowns upon festive verses.
Yet in alliteration I will affirm:
My love enlarges leaving me overwhelmed.
Two daughters, a developing son,
And a brilliant wife boldly living.
Few men find themselves so fortunate,
Honored with a heroic beauty.
Your muted glory made manifest,
Condescends by converging with my coarse unworth.
In other words, Happy Birthday to you, my lovely wife.
